washington code for the rest of us of i'm outta here? >> that is the warm-up before the departure, and in the case of attorney general holder, it is a good time for him to go because there are still lingering questions about the fast and furious gun-running sting that resulted in several deaths, there are these other questions out here about different investigations that house republicans have had. he has been a controversial figure throughout, and this would probably be, having served four full years, be a good time to let the president have a reset at the department of justice. megyn: sort of a natural transition point. he's been a very controversial figure, eric holder. and in his defense, that job tends to in modern-day america invite a will the of criticism. i mean, we saw it with ashcroft, we saw it with gonzales, mukasey didn't really have it as much, but then, you know, holder, i mean, it's a tough job if you want to do it. who is he likely to be replaced with though? because that job in particular, we're going to get to the other suspected vacancies coming upon us, but th
is live for us in washington with more on this. hi, jim. >> reporter: hello, heather. well, obamacare passed two-and-a-half years ago, and it starts to unfold this january with new taxes. then insurance exchanges up and ready in october 2013. analysts, however, say the federal government is struggling in part because of the way the bill was thrown together. >> it was put together by a bunch of special interests, and that's why you get this rube goldberg contraption, we're having all these problems. >> reporter: now, just before thanksgiving the administration finally laid out what is called essential benefits which insurance companies need to structure and price their health care plans. but the administration is pressing its luck, because insurance companies usually need much more time than they have now. >> well, it typically takes anywhere from a year to a year and a half for an insurance company to develop new policies, get them approved by regulators and develop all the materials needed to sell them to consumers. >> reporter: requirements of the law still have not been completed.
's a fellow at the american enterprise institute, columnist for "the washington post" and a former speech writer for george w. bush. welcome back. >> thanks, megyn, how are you? megyn: it's interesting to see the president say don't go after susan rice because she doesn't know anything about benghazi, she had nothing to do with benghazi, and that begs the question, simon, why did you put her out on the sunday talk shows to talk about benghazi? >> well, megyn, we've had this conversation a few times before -- megyn: but not that particular one, not that particular point. >> i think because the administration, because there were at that moment, right, the video was still causing in other parts of the world, right, and throughout north africa and the middle east there were riots and demonstrations throughout the region. the administration was attempting to explain to the american people what was going on. and as the president said yesterday that susan rice gave it her best shot, the cia has taken responsibility for producing that intelligence report which was a week late amended, in essence,
in washington that believes in the demonstration was the white house. general david petraeus said that he knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. he said that he was trying to convey that position in his congressional testimony of september 14. he apparently didn't. but the key point is he thought that he was being consistent. somehow between then and when white house spokesman jay carney spoke, susan rice goes on television on the 16, it goes 180 degrees away from the notion of a terrorist attack towards the demonstration. in an interagency practice, let me just say this, because i'm sure most people say, what are they talking about? for theory to get advanced and end up as the conclusion, some agency has to be pushing it. i think that the congressman put it very well. there is no reason to think the justice department or homeland security or anybody has anything invested in the demonstration out of control theory. there is only one entity and that is the white house. megyn: the point i was asking chairman king about was is it incredible to you that we have these hearings on capi
the president on down that democrats in washington should do absolutely nothing about short term, or long term spending problems. this is the thelmand louise crowd, the ones who dream about higher taxes and bigger government it will pay for, regardless of the impact on jobs or the economy, or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact that we can't keep running trillion dollar deficits every year and throw a tantrum if someone suggests that maybe the taxpayers shouldn't keep subsidizing ever last program washington ever dreamed up. they are reckless and ideological approach threatens our very future. and anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that starting with the president. megyn: meantime some of the president's supporters unleashed and ad blitz targeting key lawmakers reportedly spending close to $300,000 on an ad buy that talks about increasing taxes but leaving spending alone. here is part of that. >> how do we move our country forward and reduce the deficit, by creating jobs and growing our economy not
for themselves, for example, that politicians in washington, mostly men shouldn't be controlling healthcare choices that women can make perfectly well for themselves. [cheers and applause] >> for eight years we had a president who shared these beliefs, a guy named bill clinton. [cheers and applause] >> and so our beliefs were put to the test. his economic plan asked the wealtheist americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in ideas, and inc inventory no sraeugss, invest in our infrastructure. at the time a republican congressman and senate candidate by the name of mitt romney. [booing ] >> no, no, don't boo, vote. vote. voting is the best revenge. at the time mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is today. [cheers and applause] >> because by the end of president clinton's second term america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and our deficit became the biggest surplus in history. so, our ideas were tried and tested
to washington to get their ideas and input as well. at a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top 30 has to be jobs and growth. that is the focus of the plan that i talked about during the campaign. [applause] it is a plan that rewards small businesses and creates jobs here and not overseas. a plan to get the education and training for people that businesses are looking for today. being a global leader in research and jobs to america. a plan to put folks back to work. including our veterans are in rebuilding our roads and bridges and other infrastructure. it is the plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. our work is made that much more urgent because at the end of this year, we faced a series of deadlines to make major decisions about how to pay our deficit down. decisions that will have a huge impact on the economy and the middle-class both now and in the future. last year, our work with democrats and republicans to cut a chilly in dollars worth of spending that we could not afford. i intend to work with both parties to do more,
and whether the egyptian people have. we'll ask ambassador bolton what he thinks. >>> in washington we're hearing new concerns over the fate of the recently ramped up budget talks in washington and what they're talking about is your money and how much they're going to take. after a growing number of liberal democrats now say they would rather see a series of automatic tax hikes punish all americans rather than to agree to spending cuts or deals they don't like and they believe compromise their principles. this comes despite warnings from the congressional budget office that the tax hikes now about to take place could throw the economy back into recession. two million more americans could be left out of a job and most troubling of all according to the pentagon, the country's national security would be in serious jeopardy. if congress and the white house do not act. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor p.o.w. or play on foxnews.com. they cut the deal that put the automatic spending cuts in place and these automatic tax hikes in place thinking this will never happen. th
be breaking down in washington's effort to head off a series of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts that will hit americans hard in the new year unless something is done to stop it. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. treasury secretary timothy geithner headed to capitol hill today, in fact, he's still there, meeting with congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle. but after his sit-down with the speaker of the house, john boehner, mr. speaker boehner came out and told reporter that is the treasury secretary offered no new substantive plan and would not address the issue of spending cuts at all. as we reported on this show yesterday, it is no longer clear that the white house even wants spending cuts in this initial deal. it wants solely tax hikes, or at least that's all that it's been talking about x that now -- that dichotomy -- is becoming a big issue. here's the speaker. >> two weeks ago we had a very productive conversation at the white house. but based on where we stand today, i would say two things. first, despite the claims that the president supports
in washington, a couple of lawmakers are starting to raise concerns about ambassador susan rice and her possible nomination to the position of secretary of state. two republicans raising red flags after a series of meetings with ambassador rice on capitol hill. they are claiming that she had full access to all the intelligence on the 9/11 attack and then got the come libya. before she went out and inaccurately blamed that deadly ambush on a grand protest. which now we know never happened, over an anti-muslim film. catherine herridge has the latest in washington. reporter: thank you, megyn. good afternoon. the briefings on capitol hill two weeks ago, lawmakers stressing that ambassador rice had access to unclassified intelligence coming including the classified information. a leading republican tells fox at the classified information included the president's daily briefings. it contained the most classified intelligence, and in this case, compelling evidence of al qaeda's involvement in the benghazi attack. susan collins spoke to fox about this. >> she had access to the full presidential daily br
some in washington knew about the allegations against mr. petraeus for months. the chairman of the homeland committee is with us. i know you believe this is major crisis, why? >> i really do. i'm looking forward to the meeting on thursday with the other actors involved here. as far as why i believe it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. f
to the "washington post" the groups were told not to worry about any entitlement reforms or big budget cuts. the so-called safety net programs according to them are not going to be touched and the progressive groups walked away feeling very happy. the report say the white house feels it does not need to compromise, period and is willing to let the big tax hike happen on everybody. the big tax hike is what everybody will face not just the rich or the middle class. they think they'll be in a better position to negotiate with the g.o.p. after that happens. chris stirewalt joins me, host of power play on foxnews.com. >> i was a little frightened, i thought something i, really bad was happening instead of the standard badness. megyn: that is terrifying. [laughter] back down to business, the progressive groups, the union groups meet with white house officials and are very happy, which, you know, strikes fear down the spines of republicans out there i suppose. but can it really be that president obama does not plan to compromise at all? >> well what the president is trying to do and you heard it today, yo
. >> this is washington. we do it the other way. the truth is that in states like colorado and virginia we see a lot of good signs for mitt romney. states like ohio we can continue to see signs that should bode well for barack obama. it's very hard to say, but when we look at this national number where you have states that are no intensely democrat like new york and california, and you have states that are intensely republican bike texas and alabama there should be a pretty substantial offset there. whatever the reality in that dozen or so 11 or 12 swing states, whatever the reality is the much wanted ground game, the argument that we heard from chicago over and over again, that they might lose on election day but they'll win the election because of early voting doesn't seem to be shaping up that way, that's why we are in the final days of this election in a dead head. megyn: karl rove talked about ohio and early voting and absentee ballots that were requested. he says back in 2008 barack obama his margin of victory -- start with me on the bottom of this graphic you're seeing. obama's margin of vict
the folks in washington are listening. >> thank you. >> climb buy ya. [laughter] shannon: a troubling new timeline on the deaths of four americans in libya that suggests the pentagon didn't know we were under attack for almost an hour after our ambassador sounded an alarm. pete leg seth next on why that might be, that the pentagon didn't know. >>> and what looks like a joke is now quietly growing in support as hundreds, then thousands of people sign petitions requesting that their individual state secede from the union. we're going to show you who and what is behind this effort. [ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical functio
embarrassing moments. thanks, trace. we are getting breaking news from washington that 100 house members, all republicans, i believe, have sent a herb to pts * asking him not to nominate ambassador susan rice as hillary clinton's replacement in the post of secretary of state. one of the democratic congress women who says this entire opposition to ambassador rice is based on her race and gender. a new york state prosecutor finally coming clean about his past. he lied when he was running for the post of d.a. and as you know the truth always comes out. >> not on did he lie about a pornographic show. but if he's going to lie about that 30 years ago he will lie about stuff going on today. i don't think i could trust him. . . i need to rethink the core of my portfolio. what i really need is sleep. introducing the ishares core, building blocks for the heart of your portfolio. find out why 9 out of 10 large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider
this country forward. he said the same to his republican representatives in washington. he said that he will back each of us, regardless of party, as long as we work together to make life better for all of us. he made it clear that if we don't make enough progress, he will be back in touch. so my hope is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles we have to work together and put our differences aside. i cannot say it better myself. that is precisely what i intend to do, and with that, let me open up for your questions. i will start off with ben feller of the associated press. >> can you assure that there have been no security breaches involving general john allen and general david petreaus. should you have been told that the cia chief is under investigation for the last week? president obama: i have no evidence at this point that classified information was disclosed that would have had a negative impact on our national security. obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protoc
. updates on airport and whether in just a little bit. in washington, new challenges today to policy fbp eight that has government watchdogs worried about the free flow of information and the disclosure to the public, which has a right to know. lawmakers now demanding a full investigation in the allegations that the administrator of the epa, lisa jackson, has used private e-mail accounts under a fake name and in her case, a different gender, one corresponding with other government officials. the question is whether that is obfuscating or impeding the public ability to monitor her communications which we are entitled to do. congressman andy harris is the chairman of the science and environment subcommittee. thank you for being here, mr. chairman. you are among the lawmakers who are unhappy with this use of the name richard windsor. to conduct official business. epa says this is no big deal, people have been doing this since president bush was president and you're making much ado about nothing? >> is very worrisome that lisa jackson felt that she had to use a pseudonym to communicate with
